Is the lcd attached to a laptop or is it your only monitor?

In any case you should use xrandr from the command line to probe your X config 
to see what resolutions are being reported to X.

I've found to be most helpful in 
reconfiguring X from the default setup.  Although primarily written for 
laptops/external monitors, it should work fine for you.

If you're still having problems, post your hardware setup, xrandr output and 
your xorg.conf file.
